The lovely author, Scarlett Flame is my thirteenth guest on my 'Deliciously Scandalous Blog Tour'. This lady writes erotica, so be warned!!



New author in the place!! This lady rocks in ever department!!  

Thank you for joining me once again on my 'Deliciously Scandalous Blog Tour'. I do have another awesome guest joining me very soon. Now this lady is hot and I will tell you now there will be no holding back with this interview. 'Giggles'. Scarlett Flame, sure does live up to her name. If you like erotica, then you will love this lady... Ouch!!!  I can't wait till she arrives, but be warned, if you can't stand the heat or you do get easily offended, all I can say is... Sorry... But the show has to go on, 'Giggles'. Wait I can see her now walking towards the office... Wow look at that hair... I wonder if downstairs matches the top... "Hey Scarlett, I must say you are looking hot. I thought my virtual car park was on fire, but it was the sun reflecting of your hair, when the wind hit it, it looked amazing... It's true what they say, a good blowing never hurt anyone, 'Giggles'. It's really great to have you here. Can you tell my readers a little bit about yourself as I roll my tongue back in? 

My name is Scarlett Flame and I live in Manchester (although like Kevin I am a Salford lass born in Hope Hospital) I am a flame haired, blue eyed nurse currently writing my first books. My books are in the genre of erotica, Steampunk and paranormal romance.

I love to read and write and have an avid passion for music too.





Wow... I can't hear any music, but I am beginning to sing! I can see this interview is going to be a lot of fun, you don't have the take your clothes off just yet, I know you have heard about Louie, but we haven't even started the interview or gone to my virtual pub for a drink yet. Saying that I can see this being a cheap night, 'Giggles'. You were born in Hope Hospital, that's awesome, but I don't remember seeing you, I would have remembered that fiery hair all day long. Saying that I was an ugly baby, when I was born the midwife slapped my dad. I was only a small baby, I had a match stick box as a cot until I was 9 years of age. Ok maybe not. There is a part in my book, 'Passion' about that hospital. I won't say too much, but it's ten out of ten on my point scoring monitor! Born in Hope Hospital and... I'm not telling, 'Giggles. Really though... 

Sometimes in life we all want more than what we can have, but if you had one wish to have anything or anyone, what would that wish be and why?

This is SO difficult to answer. What would my one wish be? I think I would like to be taken more seriously especially in my writing. I feel that if more people believed in me and my writing that this would make me feel infinitely better about myself.

Are you crazy? You are here now with me, I have been down that road and now look at the amount of respect my writing gets, you are an awesome writer and you don't need anyone to tell you that, other than yourself. The rest will follow :) Like anything in life, it takes time to grow. You have many wonderful people behind you, not just me. God that sounds so wrong considering you write erotica! I think you need to cover up a little, my 'Minds' wondering off the question! I can feel Louie knocking downstairs. Ouch! Please just sit back and talk to me, tell me a nice story...

I would like you to make a short story up using no more than 400 words containing every one of these 14 key words; Bra, Game, Toe, Pedestrian, Rope, Window, Government, Car, Sex, Limp, Job, Grass, Sun, DM!

I stepped out of the car onto the pavement outside the Government Building, looking across the road.

My destination, job interview and date were on the opposite side of the street. I spotted the large imposing house from the window of the taxi. All I needed to do now was cross on the pedestrian crossing, walk up to the door and knock.

It was still early and the grass was damp with dew. The sun was lighting up the dew like tiny jewels, sparkling in the early morning sunshine.

I had met Tom on the internet. On Twitter actually and we would talk for hours via DM.

He had offered me a job at the family business and we were going to discuss this on our date.
The gate was tied with a loop of rope, which hooked over the gate post. As I walked up the path, Tom must have been on the look out for me (which was fortunate!) as I managed to trip over an uneven flag just in front of the door. Stubbed my toe and went flying forward. “Damn.” I thought “Good start! Face planting on the path!” Tom had meanwhile opened the door and leapt forward catching me before I hit the deck. We both laughed, breaking the ice, and I managed to walk into the house with just a trace of a limp.

Tom led me into a large room at the back of the house and my face must have been a picture!. Strewn around the room were sex toys, bottles of lube, a sex game, and to top it all a purple peep hole bra! On the table there was stacked some purple rope (obviously this family went mountain climbing a lot!)

That was when I began to think “OMG, it's like the set of 50 Shades of Grey!” That was when I heard Tom giggling. He was laughing so hard I was sure he was going to wet himself!

“By the way I didn't tell you what the family business was! Did I?” Tom spluttered”We own a number of sex shops. We need more staff now due to the increased interest in all things like this. Due to all the erotic books being published lately! 50 Shades seems to have opened the floodgates.”

We both looked at each other and I collapsed in a fit of giggles, as we held on to each other laughing.

It looked like , not only had I landed a very unusual job, but a discount on rampant rabbits as long as I worked there.

Got to love Twitter.

Lmao! Louie said, 'Who needs a rampant rabbit when you have the man with two brains interviewing you!' He's only popped into it because you were on about  peep holes in bras and sex games. I will tell him to keep his head out of this interview! Great story by the way... These sex shops of yours, can you tell the reader where to find them, I am sure I would be interested to know... I mean the reader would be! I always dig myself a hole with these interviews! Do you fancy a Ginger? I know I do... There is nothing like dunking your Ginger in a nice hot cup of tea... I love my Gingers... 'Giggles' Sorry I will stop now, it's just you have me all excited. Your hubby hasn't anything to fear, I write none fiction and my books are about affairs. You're in safe hands ;) 


When I first started writing I had a lot of negative people around me, I know I  had to lose that energy in order to continue writing and fulfilling what others thought I couldn't do. Did you ever experience any of this when you first started writing or were you lucky enough to have the right support around you?

This question takes me back to question one really. The answer is simple in some respects. NO I didn't feel that I had support. As a consequence I actually hid the fact that I was writing. Hiding my initial hand written manuscript in a drawer like some sort of guilty secret!

Your answer does :) I know it isn't nice when you don't get the respect you deserve when it comes to your writing. We all know that some of the critics have never put a sentence together, but yet they can judge! It's funny really, I do have some critics on my FB, you know the people that say; You spelled 'mark' without a capital, but yet you can go on their FB and boy I feel like putting them right... But I don't any more, I  just smile! Rise above it all and never fear what your heart is telling you to do. Don't worry what other people think. There is always going to be people out there who will try to put you down in life! Never hide what you and others believe in. I have a lot of faith in you, too much in fact...

If you had a chance to run any country and make a difference, what county would it be and why?

I would choose (if I had the opportunity) to run this country. I find the vast majority of MPs in general to be a self-centered and selfish lot on the whole. They are generally undeserving of our support or the ridiculous wages they receive. They are voted in on the lies that they tell and leave out all the stupid idiotic policies they desire to implement.

A particular bugbear of mine (as a nurse!) is the NHS.
This should with immediate effect be removed from the political arena, as so much is wasted when a party comes into power! The vast majority of changes cost us incredible amounts of money that would be put to better use providing more nurses, doctors and staff in general.

Increasing staffing reduces morbidity (research tells us more staff better care.) Not rocket science but apparently MPs can be particularly dumb on this matter. The blame has been pointed at Thatcher in respect of the dismantling of the NHS. Yet, despite being in power Labour (in my humble opinion) made the NHS worse. Staffing levels are appalling, wages do not reflect the work done. Especially work undertaken by nurses and auxiliaries etc.
Cleaning of wards and domestic staff should once again be done by staff, not agencies and nameless individuals. Once more domestic and cleaning staff would become the proud members of the ward, as they used to be.

I have been in some filthy hospitals and seen some dreadful behaviour by doctors, nurses and others. So bad that I was left feeling ashamed to be part of the medical profession ( particularly but not without exception – care of the elderly)

Yes, nursing is a calling in a lot of respects but we need to be rewarded and feel valued too.

I agree that we need to sort out social payments too. Why should someone who has not (and frequently does not) work receive more money to live on than a working individual! I think not! What incentive is there to go out and secure a job! I would do more for the elderly too (the vast majority have paid into the state all their lives! For what?

Finally (Gawd I bet Kevin wishes he never asked me this question!) I would look very closely at rewriting or re implementing The Human Rights Act and our place in the EU! I have no desire to live in a state! And this act is misused!

Rant over. I think I have said enough on this subject. Next question please Kevin.

Don't worry about the rant, you can bend over and moan later as well! Did I just say that? I am digging a hole here aren't I? I can tell by the way you're looking at me... Sorry sometimes I just think out loud. Slap me if you want, but make sure I'm bent over. 'Giggles'. I hear you about the NHS. The ex in my novels is a nurse and the stories I've heard from her and others that work for the NHS is terrible! People can blame Maggie for a lot of things, but really in this day and age and how this country is being run is shocking. It makes me want to live aboard... Anyone wants a lodger then let me know. 'Giggles'. I don't want to get started on this NHS, I hear you and the whole NHS system is shocking, speaking of shocking...

What would you say the worse thing a reader has ever said to you and what was your reaction?


I think the worse think a reader could say to me (as an erotic writer) that my writing did not cause them to “react”. That is left them cold.

Most people do not understand quite how much work is put into a piece of work (be it erotica or any other piece of writing)


I would feel that I had let my readers down. I want my work to move people and also sometimes (with humour or other emotions) make them smile or even cry.

If that doesn't work we can take pics after the interview? You can take that top off again if you like, I know it's getting hot in here and I know I'm smiling... NO! Don't put your jacket on... Now I am crying... I see what you mean about emotions, look at me? I am a right mess... I don't know if I am coming or going. Yes your words are working, 'Erm' that gives me an idea...

I would like you to vision yourself walking down a busy high street with your partner and suddenly there was a noise that came from his bottom and people turned around looking at you, what would your reaction be and why?


Ha ha loved this question (Salford lass remember!)
                        
I would probably initially go red in the face.

Then, I would think of the scene from the Pink Panther in the lift and laugh.

As a nurse I always said “Better out than in!” and it is as natural as  all our other bodily functions. Everybody does it (think about royalty doing this! Prince Philip asking his new grandson to pull my finger lol)

I think royalty might have played the pull my finger game at some point. If none of them have, then I am sure Prince William might have done this in the past. I take my hat of to that guy. He is human :) I agree it's better out than in any day, unless your name is Louie and he wouldn't agree ;)
It's good to see you're a true Salford lady and not like the Vickie Pollard girls these days.  I seen one on the peasants and she had her arse on the shop window! I looked at her funny, yes funny and not f...!! Your mind is really bad...!! Anyway where was I? Yes she had her arse on the shop window! She said, 'What are you looking at D....!' The language was disgusting, and then she let one out and boy what a ripper it was. I looked and smiled and said, you must be so proud of yourself, that's the first lot of shit you have said that has made any sense. Oh and by the way, don't wear white shorts when you do out like that again, look at the state of them'. and I carried on walking lol'... I left her looking behind at her arse. It was funny at the time. Cheeky bugger! Not to worry...

Use only two words that would describe you?


Caring Person

That's one word really. We all know that you're a person... But saying that, my last author I interviewed was from Mars. If you haven't read that interview, I think you should. He's my twin from another realm. 'Giggles'. 

8, Have you ever been…
A, The owner of a lonely heart
B. The owner of a broken heart
C. None of the above?
If the answer is C, please can you tell the reader how you have done it, I can see the reader would be interested to know that one, I know I am.


Yes, after a particularly acrimonious split I felt I would never find love again. This is a debilitating way to feel.

B)Yes. I have had my heart broken a number of times over my lifetime.

I truly would not wish a broken heart on anyone else. The pain is unbearable. Sometimes if felt like I had swallowed a large hard stone that had got stuck in my chest. The pain was SO real. I turned to drink and Valium to try and cope and block it out, but that wasn't really a solution.

I think you lose the value of yourself! I felt like no one loved me, not just the person that broke my heart. Now, I know I am truly loved by some of the people I love the most. Someone who would break my heart does not deserve my pain and tears. You have to move on.

I agree with you there. The pain of a broken heart isn't nice at all. I know I have been through that pain many times in my life. No one understands the pain, as it's your pain, your mind, and your heart that's crying out not to be broken and yes you do feel alone. It is a game of mind over matter. I went through one of my worst stages of my life I could go through last year. The loss of my home and the rest. The stress levels where very high and the depression did kick in. I had no home and nowhere to go, I didn't have the support from my family other than my Nana. They were too busy judging my grammar mistakes rather than offer me a place to stay for a few nights! It's a long story and not a very nice one at that. That was one of my worst parts of my life when I did feel alone, more alone than I ever felt with a broken heart. If it wasn't for the good friends that I have, letting me stay at theirs, then God knows what would have happened to me. One reason I have never had children, is because I would want to give that child everything I never had. If I had more than one child, I would treat them all the same. That's all there is to it...  

It's time for a little fun, I would like you to do the rhyme ‘Rock A Bye Baby’. Using your own words and without holding back.


Another difficult task Here goes.

 Rock my socks baby, please do not stop!

My batteries are flat, so I need a big cock.

Tie me and spank me and whip me with glee


So I will cum baby, please hear my plea!

Bloody hell you didn't hold back did you? LMAO! Louie and I loved it baby ;) 'Giggles'.

If you could be a musical instrument, what would you be and why?

If I could be a musical instrument I would be a saxophone. I think the sound they make is so soulful and sexy. How I would like to be seen.

If you could change one thing about you as a person, what would that one thing be?

My reticence to say NO would be the one thing I would change. I tend to overburden myself and agree to things I shouldn't have. Life would run much more smoothly if I could learn to say NO!

You can't do a rhyme like that and say no to me! You haven't even heard what I am going to ask you... Ok no it is, 'Giggles'. 

When you are writing, do you ever think, 'Erm I did that with my partner last night , that has to go into the story?

Yes some of my writing reflects things that I have done (not telling you which though lol Keep you guessing!) and others are just in my dirty little mind! Some of my writing is based on fantasies I am told by others. Be they male or female others. Sometimes it works in reverse too and my writing prompts me to experiment with fantasies I have written about too. Ann Summers and Love Honey are doing a roaring trade due to this :)

I can't get over you not telling me, it's only me and you here at the moment. So you have a smile that works well. That's great to know. Can you pass me that pencil I just accidentally dropped behind you... Mmmmm I can only imagine the smile behind the jeans! Does the fire match the fire place! Sorry I was thinking out loud... I will move on quick and I really think you can stop bending over now. You have the right pencil in your hands... I will take you shopping later, 'Giggles'...

I know we all remember our first kiss, would you say yours was a good experience or a bad one?  Please explain why.

My first kiss (as I remember) was as a teenager with an older boy. I remember not really enjoying it as our teeth clashed and I wasn't sure what to do with my nose!! Ha ha funny the things you remember.

The old teeth clashing lol. You made me have a flash back then too. I agree it is funny how you can remember things...

Do you ever remember a part in your life that’s made a huge impact on you as a person? If so would you like to share that part with the reader?

Some years ago I almost died when my kidneys collapsed. At the time I didn't realise I was so ill. The clue should have been my mother spending every visit crying her eyes out! I was on a Thoracic ward and lots of my friends on the ward died (one while I was talking to his wife!) This was when I decided that I would become a nurse and give something back as such too.

Oh my God, that is so horrible thing to go though. I am glad that experiences made you the person you are now. It is far from nice what you have gone through, not to mention the losses on the ward, I wouldn't wish it on anyone, not even my worse enemy, I am just glad you are here to tell the story, and to also inspire others through your words of wisdom and of course seduction.  Sorry I had to get that in, I don't want to put a downer on things, not now your top is back off I don't! Quick next question 'Giggles'... 

Who inspired you to write or was it always a dream to be an author?

I have always written. Mostly poetry although I haven't written much poetry in a long time.

I have always kept a diary as such too.

My impetus to write recently was after reading 50 Shades of Grey. All I could think was I could do this and write something equally good, or better! Something that wasn't quite so repetitive or unbelievable too.

So really I have to thank E. L. James for that

That is awesome, the next 50 shades, but the Scarlett Flame style! I have many styles I would like to show you after this interview, maybe we can put chains together and come up with something, or we could go to my virtual pub, which is just right there behind you, we could have a whip round and find a charity box... Like this one... See it says; I give to charity on my boxer shorts. My mate's wife bought them for him, but he couldn't fill them his wife said. I have been collecting and putting money down there, but they are tight, I have manage to get £20 down there in £5 notes. Now I know what his wife Charity was on about ;) 

Can you tell the reader about your latest work and also tell the reader where they can find you.

I have one manuscript written the book will be called (The Prophecy Unfolds (Dragon Queen) it is the first in a series of books. An erotic paranormal romance set on a steampunk world ;)

Thanks for having me (Ha ha a bit previous I know because haven't had me yet)

LMAO! I love the way she says that and then runs out of my office... It was my birthday last weekend and I am to old for all this chasing around... Anyway I hope you all enjoyed the interview and if we did offend any one in anyway, why the hell have you read to the end? My point too, and as my point is pointing up, I have a flame to put out... I must dash she's way ahead of me. Not that I'm worried, I know I will find her in Ann Summers! 'Giggles'. From both of us, enjoy your weekend, until next time, keep smiling, and be safe ;)

You didn't need that as it was a curry night where you were. Plenty of spice to work from, 'Giggles'. You didn't hold back and you went for it. Now that takes guts and is a true writer. You will go all the way, I am not talking about the closet. Your writing sweetie. I loved the answers, and the interview. You did great :) Have a fabulous weekend, and keep smiling :)Xx
